Wrap the cake ring in parchment paper and place one-fifth of the dough on top. If we have more rings, we can bake two waffles at the same time. Smooth out the dough, press flat (easiest with a dough card) and place in the oven at 180 degrees for about 10 minutes so that it browns nicely. So bake 5 waffles and let them cool down. Remove from the rings after cooling.
